Is It Necessary?

IS IT NECESSARY?

With the increasing usage of html5’s advanced features being incorporated into today’s modern websites by professional web developers such as ourselves we are now being treated to effects that were once the sole domain of Adobe Flash. But and this is a big but how much do these effects add to a page’s attractiveness and effectiveness? Does a split second effect such as text seemingly to move in from off screen impress the customer as much as the people writing this kind of code would like to believe?

Another effect we think is in the stage of being done to overkill is putting multiples of information on one space so that when the cursor is placed on the area there is a constant change. There is only so much the mind can take in during a short of interval of time. Wouldn’t the information be better on another page? What is this modern fashion of cramming everything into a small space?

A site I looked at recently actually had half a page pop up from the bottom when I put the cursor over their small twitter graphic top right. Erm…hello!

Yes if you wish we can do these effects and more to your websites here at Dernier Cri Web Solutions in Radcliffe, Greater Manchester, England, derniercri.biz, but we believe that discretion and taste should be the main issue with modern trends. Its the old adage because you can certainly does not mean you should!
